(Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and his supporters have formed a political action committee ahead of a likely bid for president, adding a third well-known Republican figure to the fight for campaign funds among the party's core donor class, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. The new political action committee, or PAC, called Leadership Matters for America, is the clearest sign yet that Christie is running. The Wall Street Journal first reported the establishment of the PAC on Monday. Among those serving on the PAC are long-time Christie allies Michael DuHaime and Bill Palatucci, as well as Phil Cox, executive director of the Republican Governors Association, the source said.
